    Hi,

    Im waiting to claim the upgrade according to this site (http://www.apple.com/uk/osx/uptodate/) it says that I have to claim it within 30 days. Where do I go to claim this?

    Regards.

    There is no where to click on that site though, unless I'm being a spas.

    Mountain Lion has not been released yet, that's why... Should be soon, though - end of this month perhaps?

    My understanding is you have 30 days upon ML release to claim. That's how it was with lion if I remember correctly.

    I was a little confused when I saw this at first too.

    Initially I thought it was telling me that within 30 days of buying my computer, I had to claim it. That is true only if you buy a computer that doesn't come with it pre-loaded after Mountain Lion is released.

    For anyone buying a computer between June 11 and when Mountain Lion releases, you will have 30 days from the day Moutain Lion is released to claim it.

    They probably should have changed the order of those statements, since right now the first statement doesn't apply to anyone, and people who read that without continuing become confused.

    The Canadian and I think the US one is a little bit clearer.

    I bought a new MBP which will qualify, but am I correct that my refurb MBA I got a week ago will not qualify?

    The refurbished models don't qualify for the free update, but I think that when you download Mountain Lion from the App Store, it should give you access on all your Macs.

    this. Since you did by a new mac, technically the old one does qualify since it is tied to your apple id

    Yes. That's what Apple told me when I asked whether the ML upgrade for my 2012 MBA applies to my 2008 iMac, too.
